I don't know if these cards will work in the atari or mvme vme
busses, but just in case...
I have recently picked up a sun3/260 with some spare cards, and
among them I've found three sun 'sc' scsi cards. They are 6U cards
in a 6U to 9U adaptor, and while probably the worst excuse for a
SCSI controller ever to connect to a VME bus, they _can_ be used
to talk to SCSI devices :)
They are designed to fit in the 'passthrough' scsi slot in a
sun vme backplane, though they also have a standard internal
scsi connector on the 6U to 9U adaptor.
der Mouse has a partially functional sc driver which he does not
have time to complete. If anyone is interested in getting a
card to work (most likely using that driver as a basis) and
would like a free card with which to work, let me know (I'll
even cover shipping :)
